My Groundnut Harvest
I grew my groundnut (apios americana) in a 3 gallong container, from a 2 inch tuber that I ordered online. My foot in the lower picture is about 12 inches long for size comparrison. I have yet to taste them, but I'll let everyone know what I think once I do. Typically in the wild you would take the two year old tubers and put the young ones back. These are all first year, but are much larger than the wild variety so I plan to eat some of them anyway.
The beautiful flowers that, unfortunately, bore me no peas this year. They are extremely hard to pollinate as they have a trigger mechanism.
These strings of tubers were literally wrapping around and around the small container. This plant loves to spread but I have no garden soil for them so I made due with what I had.
